] >> welcome again to the foundation for defense of democracy's annual washington forum. my name is kenneth schwartz. i have the pleasure of introducing distinguished public official robert kc, senior senator from the state of pennsylvania. you served since 2007 as chairman of near east and south asia subcommittee, senate foreign relations committee only in the first term. one can scarcely imagine a more challenging time, the past two years in the middle east have seen wars in international borders, collapse of regimes in decades and the rise of political movements that may yet turn hostile in the united states and its allies. new developments, he has led the way on many issues of great concern to ftd. he is founder and co-chair of the bipartisan senate caucus on weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, in that capacity worked across the partisan divide to highlight serious threats of -- weapons of mass deliberation. he has done as much to run our greatest threat in the middle east and often lead the way on pressure advancing nuclear activities and efforts to destabilize the middle east. in
we need to make the defense cuts. we want to minimize human services cuts. the best way to do that is go back to clinton era taxes. i actually have mixed feelings about striking a deal where the rich folks pay more taxes. i think they should pay more taxes, but i actually think going off clithe cliff is a bet solution than just charging people who make a lot of money what they were paying when bill clinton was president. >> the clinton tax rates worked well, and when you look at where we really are today, although the democrats are playing really tough on these top tax rates, they have conceded about 75% of the tax debate to republicans by agreeing with them on all of the otherรง rates. >> that is true, aalthough there is a matter of timing. you know, i think part of what you have to look at here is it's really hrepublicans who force this conversation about having deficit reduction right now. we shouldn't have deficit reduction right now. we should focus on jobs and employment and continued stimulus for the economy, which i was really happy about the president at least had so
cuts and tax increases but spending cuts particularly in defense. they don't want that. >> explain why what they agree on -- namely that the middle class, 98% of all taxpayers, that their taxes will stay the same, they will not go up. if everyone agrees at least on that, the president says, go ahead and pass that. why not just eliminate the 98% who won't have any changes, those making under $250,000? why not allow that to go forward? why are the republicans resisting on that. >> it could wind up there, wolf. but if the republicans lose that, they believe they kind of lose the leverage that they have. if they sort of give on that, then where's their leverage with the white house? so i think that in the end, wolf, if i had to bet -- and i don't like to bet on these things because they always disappoint -- but i would have to say that the one thing they are all likely to do at some point is to make sure the taxes do not go up on the middle class. but in order to do that, republicans want to get some concessions for that. it seems very easy to do that. democrats have done it in the past. a
on the defense authorization bill. in the process, mccain gave credence to filibuster reform. his comments step all over mitch mcconnell's claim. it's not an effort to marginalize the minority party. with 386 filibusters from republicans, these rule changes are simply a way to make the senate work again. that's what you pay them for. let's turn now to senator debbie stabenow of michigan. there's been a lot of conversation in the liberal community in this country about this. and democrats seem to be chomping at the bit. is this going to happen? are we going to see change? >> yes, i believe that we are going to see change. we have the support to make the changes and i think it's clear the public wants us to get something done. of course, we're going to work across a shouldn't be able to hold up the department of defense bill or in the case of my bringing jobs home act, which is so important for shipping jobs overseas, we had 57 votes but we couldn't get 60 to stop a filibuster and they didn't have to stand on the floor and talk so nobody knew who it was from block us to closing loopholes to bring
. and the nation needs a cia director post-david petraeus. now president obama may announce his pick for defense secretary within the next couple weeks and he may make it in a high-powered package announcement along with his choice for secretary of state. so all these jobs coming up, state, defense, cia, all will need to be confirmed by the senate and will be announced maybe at once and before christmas. maybe this is the time to have the debate about the way our national security is run. the debate we did not necessarily have before we started making big fundamental changes to that system that mostly just still get discussed behind closed doors. joining us now is senator claire mccaskill, chair of the support subcommittee. thank you for being here. >> it's great to be here. >> you and i have had a lot of interesting conversations over the years about national security. in part, because we have some differences of opinion on it. did i say anything that struck you as a misstatement of the facts? >> it's important to point out that the enemy of today is a much different enemy than the enemy that o
, look what happens at the defense and other budget items being cut, at the prepared to do that in the end? >> well one of the, one of the, part of the white house proposals actually deferring the sequestration to tie that to another sort of trigger for an overhaul of the tax code to get tax reform done by the end of 2013. you know, it's like we haven't been talking that much about the sequester. i think there's a sense that even if we do get to january 1st. everyone talks about the fiscal cliff but it really is more like a slope, maybe a green bunny slope for when you go skiing, you know. it's not necessarily even a blubl black diamond because the thinking is that if you get there, that's going to be the impetus that both sides need to sit down and get a deal and ultimately it's going to mean republicans voting for a tax cut because rates will have risen for the maitle class and top earners. >> rose: you sound like a steer. >> well i would like to have a ski vacation this winter but i'm not sure anyone will be able to get out on the town. >> rose: one other question and
by police and only given to them recently. the neighborhood watch volunteer claims he shot martin in self-defense. his trial is set for june. >>> doctors in arizona say an 11-year-old girl could die if she's not brought back to the hospital soon. this is surveillance video of her mother walking her out of a phoenix hospital last wednesday. doctors had to amputate the girl's arm and insert a heart catheter. the border patrol stopped her father over the weekend but said he had nothing to do with his daughter's disappearance. >>> in georgia, high carbon monoxide level at a school sent at least 42 students and seven adults to the hospital. students started feeling sick at an elementary school, so they evacuated the school. all the victims were treated and released. officials say the school does not have carbon monoxide detectors because they are not required by georgia law. >>> up next on a tuesday morning, we'll have your weather forecast. in this morning's money watch, mitt romney goes back to work a month after losing his bid for the white house. the republican presidential candidate has a new job
the dad today. holly hughes is a criminal defense attorney. i was watching that interview and i was wondering how that dad even stood up to do an interview. >> here you have a man who just lost his son. he told me, i buried half of my heart today. but you still find a person who is very calm and he's focused on these "stand your ground" laws. he says it's got to change. he says deaths like this don't have to happen. >> you spoke to him about the comparisons to trayvon, the race comparisons to trayvon and about "stand your ground" as well. let's listen. then we'll talk. >> i believe it was strictly anger. people try to associate that whenever people of color are different from someone else. and i believe -- still believe to this day, unless the gentleman tells me different, that it was anger that was involved in it, having the accessibility of a gun. >> your focus is on these guns? >> yes. >> your t-shirt -- show this to us. >> it says, kill guns, not kids. we have to kill these gun laws that allow them -- law enforcement has been trained and they're the only ones, i feel, should
rubio -- [inaudible] >> a defensive back coach, wasn't my fault. we didn't give up a pass, neither was there one attempted to be fair. it was a tremendous amount of fun. my seven my seven euros first year playing tackle football, so i had as much fun doing not if they ever had. >> we have a lot of new coaches and here. how do you connect? >> it's got to be fun for them. the most important thing you can do is not just about been a better player. if you can teach a kid early on to catch a ball, hold the ball right and tackle the proper form coming to keep them safe and having fun. it's very difficult to break labor. with a focus on head injuries they teach my kids how to tackle appropriately. >> and to make it fun, how do you do that? >> winning is fun winning is fun for me sicilia strikes were winning. it forces you to work with other people to accomplish your goal, particular on the particular on the offense is that there's very little you can do by yourself. you can be the best running back in the world, but if your box unexecuted come you can't get anywhere. i think that applies
with the republican defense highly tauted fan of the eagles, ed rendell and alex wagner of msnbc's "now." governor, i want you to read what's going on here. first speaker boehner defended the gop's tax proposal saying it does take a bite out of the rich but president obama held firm to tax rate hike on the wealthiest. let's listen to the back and forth. >> revenues we're putting on the table are going to come from, guess who? the rich. there are ways to limit deductions, close loopholes and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates, which we believe will harm our economy. >> let's allow higher rates to go up for the top 2%, that includes all of you, yes. but not in any way that's going to affect your spending, your lifestyles, or the economy in any significant way. let's make sure that 98% of americans don't see it -- a single dime in tax increases next year. >> so, john boehner, the speaker for the republican party in this partisan fight is saying, he's already socking it to the rich. he's willing to raise their taxes in various forms but just n
of a good deal from their standpoint, does it? >> well, i think one of the reasons that they're on defense is the fact that the president is willing to take this fight outside the beltway. inside the beltway, there's a whole fuzzy logic that starts to apply, where you lose track of what it means to be in the middle class and how serious the economic situation is. and i think as the president continues to make that case about basic economic fairness, one that nearly two-thirds of voters in this election felt that some form of raising revenues on the highest rates made sense in order to get our fiscal house in order and make investments, and the republicans are trying to dig in on the wrong side of that. so it is a tough debate. but ultimately, this shouldn't really be about who's in leadership and boehner versus kantor. this really should be about families out across the country. and you and i know, those families are still struggling and would like to see a little bit of common sense. >> well, they've made a lot of improvement. no question about that. our economy is a lot better. we can st
are the biggest part of our spending problem. defense has to be on the table. everything has to be on table. you have to begin this any dpoesh yags by agrees there are knoll going to be any preconditions. even's going to be on the table. you have to also agree nothing will be decided until everything is decided. you also have to agree everything will be done in confidence and bhoofrd behind closed doors. it's extraordinarily difficult when you try to do it. it looks like the campaign is continuing. that's where we are today. we did social security totally plievt behind closed doors. >> so you think the way they're doing it is just wrong. >> i don't think they'll ever get this this way. they're jousting each other. each side is repeating its campaign talking points. you need to have a serious confidenti confidential, substantial negotiation by top levels of both parties. >> you are a political animal. looking at this, this situation, what is your gut? who's going to win? >> i don't know. who we ought to be talking about is not who's going to win but how can the country win? look. in the short ter
was recently turned over to the defense. zimmerman claims he shot martin in self-defense. >>> flu season is under way and it could be a bad one. suspected flu cases jumped last week and this year's strain is making people sicker than others. now, here's the good news. this year's vaccine is well-matched to the virus and should take care of 90% of the flu cases. >>> a rare positive side effect to hurricane sandy, the auto industry reports that cars have been flying off the lots. mandy drur ree is here with what is moving your car sales. >> car sales rose 15%. you were saying it. we had to see a lot of replacement of cars and trucks damaged in the hurricane. but at the end of the day it's contributed to the industry's best monthly sales rate in four years. for example, chrysler continued an amazing year with november sales up about 14.4%. all in all, if you put it all together, it totals exceeding most forecasts and hopefully also back up some of the forecasts that the revival of the industry could continue into next year as well. if november was a good month, this month has the potential
cuts and entitlements or at least reform there. hasn't heard as much from defense. you are from a state that relies on that defense budget. it will get cut substantially. where does defense end up if we do get a deal? >> everybody wants to avoid sequestration. lots of my friends in the defense industry say don't do sequestration. do simpson-bowles indicating they have not read simpson-bowles because it was almost as high as sequestration in the top number. the numbers are roughly within the budget control act over ten years about $480 billion of defense cuts. sequestration almost doubles that. i think you'll see something north of 480 billion. substantially lower than that 950. what folks in defense industry have said is in addition to giving us a number, give us the ability to plan. one of the things that hobbles our defense industry more than anything is the absurd way we have run the federal government on three and six-month continuing resolutions. give us a window to plan and any legitimate business can plan against the budget. give us that number. >> some see that debt limit contro
if you do that, you go back to the clinton tax rates, cut some defense and we have a short, mild recession for two quarters. we have to get serious about the deficit e. i have no belief that the congress is going to get serious about the deficit. so tom cole was right because he wants to get the republicans back in the mainstream. but the best thing the country could do is go over the cliff. >> timothy geithner doesn't agree with you on that. >> he may or may not. but i looked at this a lot of ways. the people inside washington are awfully smart and awfully out of touch. we need to do something about the deficit. going over the fiscal cliff is the best thing we're going to get out of washington in terms of serious production to the deficit. we will suffer, but we got ourselves into this. we're not going to get out without some pain. i think we are going to go over the cliff. >> let me quickly say i don't favor going over the cliff, but howe regard is right. if you're worried about the deficit, the easiest way is to go over the cliff. you have increases right away. >> yeah. >> can
revving up a brand new israeli-made missile defense radar system. both countries promise to shoot down anything that might go astray, bill. bill: wow! what is the north korean government saying about it this time, greg? >> reporter: all means a lot to the new young leader kim jong-un. it is meant to mark the first anniversary of the death of his father, kim jong-il and mark the end of the year which is supposed to show the impoverished nation is on its way to be strong and prosperous. we're seeing pongyang manage the message more than usual domestically and internationally. my contacts say this country could very well call the launch successful whatever happens. secretary of state hillary clinton is in europe this week at a meeting in nato in brussels. her message is pretty clear. it wants north korea to stop this. if this missile works, bill, the range could be over 6,000 miles. that would put whatever it is launching in the payload in the range of los angeles. bill: greg palkot, watching that out of london. six minutes past. >> this is not north korea's first attempt at this. since 1

the president is dealing with one of many pressing issues. he's about to speak at the national defense university on efforts to secure nuclear weapons. and as the president faces security demands on the global stage, he's proving as tough a negotiator as republicans have ever seen on the fast approaching fiscal cliff. in the last hour house republicans presented a counteroffer to the president's plan including $800 billion in savings through tax reform with no tax rate hikes. john boehner blasting the president's, quote, la la land offer. that just moments after the president took his plan to the people answering questions about the fiscal cliff on twitter, and with less than a month to go, the white house dispatched treasury secretary tim geithner to five sunday talk shows to declare tax rates on the wealthy are going up one way or another. >> if the republicans say, sorry, no way are we going to raise rates on the wealthy. you guys are willing to go off the fiscal cliff? >> it republicans are not willing to let rates go back up, and we think they should go back to the clinton levels,

, military response? "outfront" tonight, peter brooks, former deputy assistant secretary of defense under the bush administration, and colonel cedrick layton, former member of the joint staff. good to see both of you. colonel layton, let me start with you. if the united states were to get involved at this point, what would a serious u.s. military intervention in syria look like? >> it would probably, erin, start out with a no fly zone type operation, similar to what we had during operation southern watch, which -- and northern watch, which basically governed the skies over those parts of iraq after the first gulf war. that would be the first step. however, in order to secure things like chemical weapons, you would definitely have to look at using ground troops. it may not be u.s. ground troops, but the possibilities certainly exist that they might be used. >> of ground troops which i think is the key words for all viewers out there. ground troops is a very different sort of concept than what many people thought about what would happen in syria. and peter, i guess it comes down to this, ab
